Lost is My Quiet: Love Songs for Voices, Guitar, and Theorbo presents songs of Barbara Strozzi and Henry Purcell as well as music for solo guitar, exemplifying the fiery and passionate love songs of the Baroque period. Though the music was written in the 17th century, these works express emotions that resonate powerfully with our contemporary experiences. Ranging from the tortured longing illustrated by the groundbreaking female composer Barbara Strozzi in L'Eraclito Amoroso to the celebration of partnership in Henry Purcell's duet "You Say 'Tis Love," we explore the drama and beauty of Baroque love songs and instrumental music.
